INFJ Career Choices
INFJs are effective in occupations involving substantial intellectual work, caring for other people, and requiring creativity. INFJs build successful careers in a broad range of organizations. Social and community care services, counseling, teachers of humanities and social sciences, healthcare workers (both in administration and in medical services), various service-oriented professions as well as religious services and social movements are just some of the examples of occupations favourable to INFJs. Quite often they are found in mid-rank management positions. For some of them occupations in sciences or academia are also favourable.

What is your personality type? Take the Test!
- Education is a huge investment of time and money so be ready to ask a lot of questions of any college or university you are considering. Therefore, create a list of questions and take notes as you get your answers while talking to an enrolment advisor or when signing up and requesting information.
- Be wary of any school that is unable to or refuses to answer any of your questions. A degree is a long-term commitment and choosing a college or university that understands and can meet your needs should be one of your top priorities.
- Sign up and request information from several schools so that you can compare and, if possible, negotiate more favourable conditions.
- There is no such thing as the "perfect" college or university. Stay open minded and realize that any number of schools may be a good fit for you and provide you with the degree and student services that you need.
Important aspects you should pay attention to include:
- School’s accreditation
- Financial aid offered
- Tuition and fees. What’s included and what isn’t. Payment plans.
- Student services available
- Instructors’ credentials
- How tests are administered
- Time required to complete the program
- How long the program has been offered and how many students have enrolled
- Key dates
- Any requirements or pre-requisites
